3 yo with nail dystrophy

This 3 yo boy has had a malformed left great toe nail since infancy. Recently, he traumatized it and may have had a subungual hematoma. His pediatrician tried to drain it with a hot paperclip, but was unsuccessful. His parents want to know what could be done to improve this nail.
